Could be Lupester, but it has alot of color where the ones I used to have, which were wild, weren't that colorful. Not even in breeding dress. I almost have to say that it may be a cross. Synspilum was my first impression, too.

there is more then one color variant of synspilum, your second one is a synspilum, watch out, if it is a male, it will attain 17"

the first one to me looks like a strain of flowerhorn, a low grade, but a flowerhorn

Cyanoguttatus and Carpitnis dont look anything like that first fish...
